Ararat gar­den­ing grows

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

Ararat Gar­den­ing Club has wel­comed sev­eral new mem­bers fol­low­ing a suc­cess­ful re­cent first All Things Gar­den­ing com­mu­nity expo at Ararat’s Alexan­dra Hall.

Event or­gan­iser and Ararat Com­mu­nity Gar­den mem­ber Les­ley Sladdin said the show­case flour­ished, with about 28 stall­hold­ers and hun­dreds of peo­ple at­tend­ing.

“We have had quite a few mem­bers join in the past few weeks, but just from the expo with our gar­den­ing club in­for­ma­tion stall we added a few more,” she said.

“It was just a ter­rific day, es­pe­cially for a first go.

“There was a lot of worry be­fore­hand, but to see all these peo­ple wan­der­ing around and en­joy­ing the weather and gar­den was great.

“A lot of the pub­lic are ask­ing if we will do the event again and we have had lots of pos­i­tive feed­back, so I am hop­ing we will con­tinue it.

“I think even if Ararat Gar­den­ing Club don’t do it, we know another group who will likely take the event up.”

The club said it would shift its meet­ings to the third Wed­nes­day of each month at Ararat Se­nior Ci­ti­zens Cen­tre due to in­creased mem­ber­ship.
